• Wood Engineering Technology Limited (WET) has developed a breakthrough product, OEL™, an engineered wood product that unlocks the value of sustainably grown forests here in New Zealand and abroad

  • The customers for OEL™ are structural lumber and laminated lumber users who should value highly the superior performance rating of OEL™

  • “the potential of the OEL™ technology could be significant for the New Zealand forestry and wood processing industry, and the economy more broadly”

  • "engineered wood products will be the preferred building material of the 21st Century driven by the need to transition to a low carbon environment and a preference for products derived from renewable resources"
